box out
1. This refers to when a basketball player tries to establish a better rebounding position than their opponent. Boxing out entails widening your stance and arms and using your body to form a barrier between the opponent and the basket.

This drill emphasizes principles of closing on a shooter and maintaining a box out for the defensive players, and it teaches offensive players to follow their shots. It will give players practice in sustaining the intensity required to box out and to beat a box out.

Defender #1 reads that #2 is shooting and rotates to box out for rebound.
Coach can make this rotation hard or easy, depending on level of players.
Defender passes to next player in line and offense takes the fronting position.

When the coach shoots, the players below the foul line have to box out the players above the foul line.
